The need for FORWORD stems from the realization that relationships are possible only through communication. The only way for us to be in a relationship with God is to hear from God. The only way for others to come into a personal relationship with God is for someone to dare to speak for God. Life with God always depends on someone choosing to take God at his word.
Churches building on traditionalism drown in nostalgia of days gone by. Noveltism commits the opposite error by trying to build the church on the slogans of its generation. The churches inspired by the dominant voices of culture swell with crowds mistaking the clamour of their preferences for the voice of God. It is our contention that both sides of the communication disorder are energized by the same malignant cause, namely, our failure to take God at his word.
